Burnmite horn rub This article lacks an official name. "Tiga's companions" is simply how it is referred to as, due to the popularity in the fandom or how its mentioned in-story.

Tiga's companions are a pair of Ultra Warriors who accompanied Ultraman Tiga one time after he redeemed himself from the Dark Giants, they formed an Ultra Team who protected the ancient civilization on Earth. Tiga and his team saved the civilization from countless catastrophes. However, due to being Ultras, they were restricted from interfering with human decisions when some of them picked Gijera over the Ultras. After their duty was done, they were laid to rest inside a giant pyramid until the Earth needed them again, predicting the incoming calamity induced by the great destroyer. Their essences departed for their home, leaving behind physical replicas of their forms for a future generation.

However, in the present times, both of these statues were destroyed by the newly awakened Golza and Melba while Tiga's remained intact, which Daigo later used to fuse with him. With his comrades’ statues destroyed, Tiga became the final member of their team left to protect the Earth until his final mission, saving humanity from the great destroyer. With no more Ultras to protect the Earth, a new Ultra with a similar appearance to Tiga appeared nine years after his retirement. It was also revealed that the artificial Ultraman Terranoid was made from their remains, as well as those from Evil Tiga.

Tiga Manga

These Ultras appear in a non-canon manga drawn by Tony Wong and published by Dark Horse Comics. They are first seen helping Tiga save the ancient civilization from a deluge of monsters.

In modern times they were with Tiga in a strange dimension when Daigo was rescued from his plane crash. After Daigo merged with the Tiga statue, it was the two of them who bestowed on him the knowledge of Type Change.

Trivia

  • Although unrelated to them, the two Ultras have distinct helmet features that closely resemble Dyna and Gaia.
    • In real life, these two Ultras were rejected designs for Ultraman Tiga. During the series' early planning stages. three proposed designs were put out for the titular Ultra, made into the form of clay statues. When Tiga's current design was chosen as the winner, the other two were kept as said statues that were ultimately destroyed by Golza and Melba.
      • Initially, plans were also made to have supposedly five statues in the pyramid instead of three. While two of them were crushed by Golza and Melba, the other two would fuse with Tiga to provide him with the Type Change ability. Had this plan went on in the series, the backstory of Tiga stealing the Dark Giants' powers would have never happened.
  • The description of the dimension Tiga and his Companions resided in, prior to Daigo's merger with him, implied a sort of limbo dimension between life and death for the Ultras. Despite the numerous resurrections in the series, this is the first time hinting to a spiritual afterlife in the Ultra Series, not counting the Monster Graveyard.
  • In the 4Kids version of the series, the companions' statues were explained to be fake statues meant to protect the real statue, Tiga's.
  • Both statues may have inspired the design sculpts for Ultraman Max and Ultraman Xenon.
  • The statues being converted to actual physical bodies bear similarities to the Predacons from Transformers: Beast Wars and the Cybertronians (both Autobot and Decepticon alike) from Transformers Animated, using their own kind's inactive body to recreate another of their kind (Protoforms). The former (Predacon) was were regarded as unethical by the enemy faction (Maximals) as it disgraced their honorable sacrifices.
